to jonathan dine. >> the u.s. postal svice is very important to most of the people in this room today. it is now trying to go into a program that would compete and be unfair to newspapers. in many cases, newspapers the largest customer for the post office in the community. what i like to know is, what is your position on this issue and the other issues of closing rural post offices and iminating saturday livery. what's your position on this? what would do you in the senate to help rural newspapers and community newspapers that depend on the ptal service? >> like many of the things run by the government, the postal office is one of them that's very inefficient. i have a friend who works for the postal office as mail carriers. he gets four days straight, ten hours a day. every time he's needed, he gets more oveime. the federal government instead of hiring postal service, will prefer to pay double time or time in a half to one individual wasting more money instead of hiring more people and creating more jobs. i think that the postal service should cut cost if it wish to remain around. m
